Magic Chef over-the-range microwave oven doesn't cook. Clock, inside lights and turntable are fine

If it lights up, the fuse is fine. On all of the recent Magic Chef's I've repaired, the magnetron has been the cause of the problem you described. Another possible common culprit is the high voltage rectifier.

  • Interlock switchIf your microwave is turning itself on, the first thing to check is the interlock switch. This is usually the first thing to malfunction that could cause this issue. If the interlock switch is bad then it will need to be replaced.
  • Main control boardIf your microwave is turning itself on and the interlock switch is still working, the probable cause is the main control board. If the control board is defective it will need to be replace

    MCO160 microwave and cook vent appliance problem--there was a power surge and now only the light works--is there a reset button?

    no reset button. if you are getting lights that means you are getting power and all your fuses are good. you may have a bad control board caused by the surge

    Microwave won't Work

    sounds like a fuse for starters, remove outer cover there will be a white cartridge appx 1"longX1/8"dia this is a ceramic fuse avail at most hardware stores in 15 or 20 amp configurations, if this blows again after repl suspect a faulty H.V. Diode/H.V. Capacitor, or the magnetron tube unless while inside unit you see something obviously wrong 2 fuses are under $5.00

    I was making popcorn and the microwave just died

    Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

    Microwave stopped working completely

    Fan turned on after cooking because a thermostat got to hot and tripped turning on the fan to try to cool the unit.  The unit went completely dead when thermal fuse tripped which is located above the cavity on the left side.
